The correct option is C

Germanium


Eka-Silicon was one of the undiscovered elements named by Mendeleev, which he believed would have similar properties to that of Silicon. He left a blank space for this element in his version of the Periodic table. Today, it is known as Germanium and is found to have properties similar to that of Silicon.
